I'm stuck with the TV over a fireplace situation, which I know isn't ideal but the reality is if I want a TV, thats where it has to go. I have a 46" LCD above the 48" high mantle right now. It works ok, but I know that the top of a 60-65" model will be far too high, even if it is just resting on the mantle itself.
Has anyone been using either the Mantlemount or Down and Out mount for at least 6, 12, or more months? Do you still like it? Does it still work? How hard was it to install? How big of a TV do you have mounted (I'm looking between 50 and 75lbs).
I know the Down and Out model is stupid expensive, but the Mantlemount is apparently forever out of stock.
